The PMM balers can be used to compact almost all compressible waste materials into high density bales.
The LIDEX hydraulic scrap shear with side compression is specifically designed for the compacting and shearing of heavy and bulky scrap.
The new S-Wing scrap shear with compression by wings is specifically designed for the compacting and shearing of light to medium-heavy mixed scrap
The PACK METAL balers are ideal for the recycling of metal waste coming from waste sorting centers.
The P2C and P3C baling presses are used to compact all types of metal waste into high density bales conforming to the requirements of steel making plants and foundries
The management of waste generated by the operation of nuclear plants is a major industrial issue, reinforced by the fact that an increasing number of nuclear power plants will have to be dismantled in the coming years.
The nuclear sector has to deal with the same issues as the recycling professionals for the treatment of the waste coming from the operation as well as the dismantling of nuclear plants:
Copex machines are the perfect fit for those issues and allow to treat the big variety of waste materials generated by nuclear activities:
The specific feature of nuclear waste is their activity level. With Copex machines all types of radioactive waste materials (very low level waste, low-level short-lived waste, long-lived low and medium level waste, high-level waste) can be treated.
Depending on the degree to which waste are radioactive, the machines shall be adapted in order to guarantee a treatment and conditionning of those waste materials in a secure way for humans and environment.
The engineering know-how and expertise of Copex have their real significance in a strong cooperation with the various actors of the nuclear industry at the preliminary stage project.
Through our long experience as a designer and manufacturer of machines used by the recycling industry to treat all kinds of solid waste, we can direct you towards the best waste managing system, depending on the hourly volume to treat, the nature of the product, and its container.
Our engineers also can help you define or validate the technical and economic feasibility of your project, through the carrying out in full scale trials or numerical modelling.
Our engineering competences will allow you find out the most adequate equipment for your specific nuclear application, taking into consideration economic and environmental issues.
Benefiting from almost 30 years of experience in the supply of nuclear waste recycling equipment, Copex is proud of his many references:
Depending on the radioactivity level of nuclear waste, some safety features can be implemented:
The security of our installations is guaranteed by recognized inspection bodies in the nuclear sector. Our machines are installed and started by authorized Copex personnel and meet in all points the technical specific requirements of the project (calculations, security, integration, capacity design, location of the installation…).
